The Importance Of Taking Care Of Our Mouth

Of our whole body, our teeth seem to be the one part of the body that becomes the most neglected and it is the one part of our bodies that we have the least knowledge on. It is a very unfortunate fact that we do not have much information about how to take care of our mouth and teeth because these are extremely important parts of our bodies and having to take our teeth out due to rot can be extremely painful and also dangerous as our teeth are so close to our brain. In fact it is also extremely alarming that most adults in this day and age do not have the correct information about how to take care of teeth.

Maintenance and check upsAs a result of this lack of knowledge, today filling cavities, dental implant in Singapore and various other dental problems are the result of improper maintenance of the teeth. Even in our schools, we are given very little information about dental hygiene but the one thing we are told is that we need to brush your teeth after every meal to the best of our ability and we must brush our teeth as we wake up and before we go to sleep in the night. The sad reality is that we do not even follow these simple rules as adults and therefore we face numerous problems with our teeth as we grow older.

Dentists are forced to put in porcelain veneers as a result of fast decaying teeth and we are forced to go through massive amounts of pain that could easily have been prevented.

Diet and lifestyleMany people do not know that diet and lifestyle play a big role in the health of our teeth and that our teeth tend to rot easily if they are not strong and they do not have right vitamins and minerals to make them strong. We need to eat food that is rich in calcium to make our teeth stronger and we need to stay away from dairy products because contrary to popular belief, milk leeches the calcium out of our bodies and is not at all rich in calcium as the dairy industry wants us to believe. We need to brush our teeth a minimum of twice a day and try to look for herbal tooth pastes as opposed to chemical ones because these chemical tooth pastes can play a role in making our teeth weaker as opposed to stronger contrary to what the advertisements tell us.
